Alec Baldwin has barely gotten started at MSNBC and the actor turned anchor has already been suspended.
Baldwin who seems to love hurling around gay slurs while at the same time pledging his support for the gay community has been taken off MSNBC's air for two weeks after he called a photographer a "cocksucking fag."
Of course everyone...well expect for the suits at MSNBC, had predicted that something like this would happen.
Baldwin, who's known for his short temper and giant ego, released this statement and it was posted on MSNBC's website:
I would like to address the comments I made this past week.
I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand “Up Late” will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.
I want to apologize to my loyal fans and to my colleagues at msnbc – both for my actions and for distracting from their good work. Again, please accept my apology.
We predict that Baldwin will comeback to MSNBC, there will be another incident and MSNBC will finally wise up and end this failed experiment.
